Miss Nelson Is Missing!

by Harry Allard

Illustrated by James Marshall

Published by Houghton Mifflin, 1985

Miss Nelson’s class of students are out of control.  Sweet Miss Nelson has had enough, and knows just what to do to get her kids to appreciate her again: get a substitute.  Enter Miss Viola Swamp, a witchlike woman who ran the classroom like a prison, and made the kids miserable.  When Miss Nelson returns, the kids are overjoyed to have their sweet-tempered teacher back.  Will Viola Swamp make another appearance?  Only time will tell.

A great book for elementary aged students.  No curricular connections, but generally a good reminder for students about good behavior in the classroom.
